Man,
Am I pissed that my video camera was OFF when I thought it was ON or we would have world record "noob wobble" to show. Guitarmy was back and forth across the road in front of me I swear 4-5 times looking like a sidewinder snake, all in about 50 feet. He crossed both lanes every time and the last time was to the left when he went off the road, recovered, and still kept the bike upright and never went down. I was laughing out loud. He said "I was sideways a couple of times there". Great memories, too bad the camera was off. Never again! Bringing extra batteries and SD cards to keep it rolling the whole day. I must admit, Guitarmy did a great job for only riding a motorcycle for 2 months and he had deathwings on a pig (Honda 650).

I feel his pain. My first trip in sugar sand was in Ocala on a KLR 650

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms

LOL nice video there Dave. I'd be embarrassed if I had a sense of shame. Working on getting some new tires so I can get out there again.

We missed you too... dont worry we talked about you.

We had a KLR rider who amazed everyone by riding the long loop with us. You would have had a ball..
